Tomorrow is our first official holiday we spent here in the US. The downside to it – at least for me – is that I have to work. The company I work for doesn’t shut down business on holidays, so we are all asked to work tomorrow. We actually are allowed to take a day off or are granted another Paid Day Off when we work tomorrow. I decided to go to work, because I don’t really care about the holiday and because I am going to a Baseball game with my colleagues in the afternoon anyways. So this work day won’t be as long as a normal work day will be.
We still have Flo’s parents with us in Los Angeles (they arrived two weeks ago), so Flo will spent his day off with his parents. Luckily the weather got a bit better in the last weeks, so they hopefully will have some time in the sun. It will be strange to actually see shops closed tomorrow, because everything in this city normally is so busy. But hopefully this will be a bit relaxing for Flo being the only one of us who has a day off.
In this spirit, I wish everyone here in the US a nice and sunny Memorial Day and everyone back in Germany a nice start into this new week!
